Strengths:    Rims are very strong, no problem mounting Kenda Nevegal 2.5 wire beads with a bit of soaped water. Both wheels when new spun exceptionally smooth and engagement seemed quick.

Weaknesses:    Jumping Flea rear hub appears to have same bearing issues as its siblings(see mtbr reviews). Bearings making noise and clinching in freewheel mode after only a few months usage. I'm pretty much a clyde at ~225 do occasional DH but mostly rough XC with occasional drops, nothing extreme though.

Bottom Line:   
Be aware that Sun's Flea hubs have a checkered past. Rest of wheelset seems top notch. No problems with front hub so far.

Bottom Line:   
I was looking at the trasition wheels based on the reviews but they do not build a 150 rear so I asked around and when I saw these for 300 shipped no tax Bam bought them like I said a little heavy but so am I!

Strengths:    rim(sun mtx) is durable and stylish, hub engagement is comforatable and hubs spin very smoothely, they give you a lot of speed!

Weaknesses:    none yet!

Bottom Line:   
this is a great wheel for dirtjumping and street, im sure its great for downhill too, but i dont downhill. I have the rear 12mm thru hub set up with an azonic momentum 12mm-10mm conversion axle and it works great. These are the best wheels i have used yet!
